Work commenced today on a new footpath along the Saint George River foreshore.
Contractors started work today on widening 500 meters the foreshore footpath.
They are looking to remove and replace the 1.2metre path with a 3meter path.
The first section is between the two ramps opposite the St George Hotel and Inland Legal.
It's expected to take workers a few months to complete with working wrapping up in late October.
Balonne Shire Council received $260,000 for the upgrades from the Works for Queensland grant program.
